To ask the Prime Minister [pursuant to his answer of 11 June, Official Report, column 869W], on the Suez Medal, when he expects the General Service Medal will be presented; what the arrangements are for applications to be made for the medal; and what arrangements have been made for a presentation ceremony.

The next step is for the eligibility criteria to be approved by HM The Queen and for the medal to be minted. I hope that this can be done shortly.Once the qualifying criteria have been agreed, the Ministry of Defence will make an announcement setting out the arrangements for applying for and receiving the medal.
